This chicken recipe is very, very simple, but it's also delicious and always manages to impress dinner guests.
1 whole chicken, rinsed and bag removed
2 medium onions, chopped
1 large leek, chopped
1 cup white wine (Pinot Grigio works well)
2/3 cup cognac
Spread a thin layer of butter over outside of chicken. Place in slow cooker, cavity side up. Stuff with chopped onions and leeks, putting leftover onions and leeks in bottom of slow cooker. Pour in cognac and wine. Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper, and parsley in desired amounts. Cover and cook on Low for 4 – 6 hours. Remove from slow cooker carefully, as chicken will be very tender. Place on serving platter, spooning some of the juice and vegetables over the chicken before serving.
Bonus Tip: If you're making rice to serve with the chicken use some of the leftover juices and vegetables from the slow cooker in place of some of the water you cook the rice in. It's delicious!
